Hyundai has confirmed the all-new Hyundai i30 will spawn a whole family of vehicles.

At the presentation of the new five-door model in Frankfurt today, the brand’s design chief Peter Schreyer flashed a slide on the screen that revealed outline drawings for the other models in the range, but did not give any further details on them. 

At present, Hyundai has only confirmed a high-performance N version of the i30 is coming in 2017. This is set to be called RN30, according to recent trademark applications.

The N version could be the model depicted in the middle of the three line drawings, as its profile seems to match the proportions of the five-door hatchback. However, this model could also be a low-riding crossover that could sit below the Tucson in Hyundai’s range.

The other two line drawings are easier to decipher. The model on the far right is the estate version of the i30, while the one on the left appears to be a swoopy four-door saloon-come-coupé, not too dissimilar in profile to the i40 saloon model. 

Hyundai wants to become the number one Asian brand in Europe by 2020, and the firm’s European marketing chief Jochen Sengpiehl said that an expanded i30 range was a key part of that strategy.
